Stampin' Up! Everyday Elegance Easter Baskets

Aren't these adorable?  And so EASY to make yourself.  I love the way the Everyday Elegance designer series paper works for these little Easter baskets.
You can still get the Everyday Elegance paper for FREE today and tomorrow with a $50 purchase. 
Check out my additional FREE stuff offer post HERE. and don't miss out on on your FREE Sale A Bration choice.
Sale A Bration ends on March 31st.

Here's how you make 'em...
You'll need a 4 1/2inch x 5 inch piece of paper.
Score at 1 1/2 inches and 3 inches along the 4 1/2 inch side, as shown above. (The Simply Scored Scoring tool is great for this and if you're going to make several, just put your markers in place)
 Along the 5 inch side, score at 1 1/2 inches and at 3 1/2 inches, as shown above.
Cut along your score lines as shown.  Cut from the 4 1/2 inch side up to the score line on both ends, creating 3 tabs of equal length and width.
Fold basket on all score lines and fold together as shown.  Holding tabs in place on one end, punch through all three layers.  Do this on both sides.
The handle is 7 inches by 1/2 inch.  punch a hole in each handle end as shown.
Put brad through all tabs and through one handle end and fasten by folding brad tines back.  Do the same on the other side and your basket is done!  You can do all sorts of things to decorate.  Mine are really simple, because I wanted to demonstrate a quick and easy project.  When you use designer series paper and designer brads that coordinate it's really easy to create a WOW factor with your simple projects.
I hope you enjoyed today's post and don't forget about Sale A Bration!
Til later,

Stampin' Up! Fabulous Florets Anniversary Card

Wow! It's startling to me how long its been since I've had a chance to do some crafting.  We moved form Nebraska to Tucson, AZ at the end of last month and I'm just now getting settled to the point where I can stamp again.  It feels good!
I needed to make a few anniversary cards for my downline and here's the first one I came up with.  I love the look of the Beyond the Garden Suite projects in the Stampin' Up! Idea and Catalog.  (Pages 106-107) Since the weather here is so lovely it's really gotten me in a spring time mood.  The colors in this suite are really spring-y.  I hope you enjoy it.
The foliage image from the Fabulous Florets stamp set was embossed using Melon Mambo embossing powder on Melon Mambo card stock.  I love that look.  The flower image was also stamped and embossed with Melon Mambo embossing powder but on the same designer series pattern from Beyond the Garden as the background panel.  I thought it was a nice way to take the coordination of products just one step further. This technique is called Paper Piecing. 
I also like the "here's to you" sentiment for an Stampin' Up! anniversary.  Each member of my downline is very special to me, and I want to do a better job of letting them know that this year.
If you're interested in joining Stampin' Up!, The Creators group could be for you.  It's a very low pressure group, mostly consisting of hobbyist demonstrators. 
The Starter Kit is currently only $125
(regularly $175) 
until March 31, 2012.  
There are so many wonderful benefits to being a demonstrator, you can learn more on my Stampin' Up! website HERE.
Don't miss out on Sale-A-Bration 
and your Free product choice from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog 
with every $50 purchase. 
A $50 purchase also qualifies you to a ROSE reward.  See the details of my rewards program HERE
